J.-L. Janeau, IRD research engineer at iEES Paris (FEST and F2ZC teams), is co-organizer of an EGU21 session.
Soil carbon persistence can be understood through the lens of decomposers as a result of functional complexity derived from the interplay between spatial and temporal variation of molecular diversity and composition. For example, co-location alone can determine whether a molecule is decomposed, with rapid changes in moisture leading to transport of organic matter and constraining the fitness of the microbial community, while greater molecular diversity may increase the metabolic demand of, and thus potentially limit, decomposition.Lire la suite / Read more
Team publications Team members The objectives of BIOgeography and Diversity of Interactions in Soil (BioDis) team is to analyse these interactions in their environmental context in order to better understand the functioning and evolution of soils. The strategy that we have adopted is to study biotic interactions, whilst accounting for the abiotic constraints that regulate or […]Lire la suite / Read more
Obama nungara is a species of land flatworm originating from South America; the species was recently described and distinguished from a similar species, Obama marmorata. Obama nungara has invaded several countries of Europe, but the extent of the invasion has not been thoroughly mapped.Lire la suite / Read more
